Much of contemporary society and many leaders in the Church have been persuaded that all people are primarily sexual beings and that they have a right to express themselves sexually. We consider this to be a false teaching about our humanity. We claim that we are primarily spiritual beings and that our sexuality is only a part of us: a God-given desire and ability to relate to the opposite sex in a way that leads to love, marriage and family.
It is truly eye-opening to see the strong statements in the Bible about the power of the tongue and the import of what we say on our lives. I suppose we should not be surprised, given the fact that God spoke the world into existence, and we, being made in His image, speak our world into existence. The most powerful words to shape our lives is our confession of faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God and our personal Savior. This makes us a new creation in Christ, who comes to dwell in us.
